Trusted Europe, Group and Global Travel Expert
My passion is travel! After selling my advertising agency a few years ago, I bought half of Passport Travel and rebranded it to 58 Stars Travel. Our goal is to present a modern approach that showcases the value of a travel advisor, by presenting a fresh take on travel agencies. We'll explore unique ways to engage with consumers, look to utilize online and social media in presenting our vision, build deep relationships with travel suppliers around the world, and create custom-crafted travel experiences that are more meaningful and well thought-out. And, most importantly, I love to plan travel with clients!
I've traveled throughout my life and have experienced and lived in some of the most amazing destinations and local cultures. These journeys left a significant mark on me and helped me to better understand what makes meaningful travel experiences. And now, I have the opportunity to help others by offering my expertise in travel throughout Europe, where I lived for a period of time, as well as SE Asia, Japan, New Zealand and Australia, Mexico and Central America, Caribbean and North America. My travel experiences, along with my connections with suppliers in destinations, gives me a proficiency and deep understanding that allows me to deliver off the beaten path experiences, wine and culinary recommendations, and local opportunities to connect with communities in interesting ways.
So, who are we at 58 Stars? We create tailored, seamless, custom travel insider-style itineraries that leave our clients soul-struck and awe-inspired. Wanderlust, wonder, and insatiable curiosity courses through our veins. And we chose 58 Stars as a name, because from the earliest days, like-minded explorers used the same 58 stars to navigate the unknown. They trusted these stars. Revered these stars. And we decided that if explorers could use these stars to navigate the globe, why couldn't we highlight them to navigate our clients to some of the most incredible destinations around the globe. 58 Stars brings the world to our clients and brings our clients deep inside the worlds they crave, with connections that run deep and far. When I plan a vacation for a client, i want to leave them soul-struck and awe-inspired. Travel is about the journey and the destination, and i want to be there to handle it for you, so all you have to do is take it all in.
So, if you’re ready to work with a passionate traveler who understands how to create experiences that will stay in your heart forever, then I’m here for you. My goal is to listen, learn and then deliver your dream vacation.

Mike met with me for a short period of time, and asked me questions about the types of things that my family likes to do on vacation, as well as budget and timing. The next thing I knew, Mike & his team presented a detailed presentation of our trip. This was not an easy trip to book. The trip included flights to several island locations, cars to inland destinations, and local-flavor excursions. One great surprise was the wondrful private tour guide that took us to see the ruins in Delphi and Olympia. Mike also found the MOST fabulous hotels, And most importantly, it was all EASY !
